Get Fit for Summer: Almonds

Get Fit For Summer!

If you’re looking for a healthy nut to add to your morning bowl of yogurt and granola, then pick up a bag of almonds. Almonds are high in healthy fats and protein. Stocked with monosaturated fats and protein, almonds are heart-healthy, and when combined with fiber, help keep you full longer.

In fact, dieters that eat almonds tend to experience decreases in LDL, or the “bad” type of cholesterol.

Almonds have great health benefits. Stocked with Vitamin E and B-17, almonds help decrease the risk of cancer. Even better, almonds actually encourage good bacteria to grow in your intestinal track, improving your digestive health.

For a delicious, almond-packed treat, try these almond and orange biscotti. Breakfast is better with a bowl of almond-spiked granola. For more than just mixing almonds into your breakfast, try making almond milk!
